Oaky so I have a thread in Bonding called Bonding Two Females - contiunes and I wanted to ask about this.
Gracie #2 has softened toward Baby #1 or so we thought. She had licked Baby's face and then literally 3 minutes later when Baby hopped in the large hay box, Gracie nipped her and pulled out more fur than ever before!
It seems that Gracie #2 in recent nips or nip attempts has been over, a pc of carrot, a poop dish, and now the hay box. She seems possesive and I'm wondering if she can be broke of this? Any ideas? Baby might be balded before we settle this.
Also Gracie #2 contiunes to poop and peep around the cage area every time she is let out even tho I am switching their cages, and poop dishes (with poop and paper chucks with urine on them) once day.
Thanks for you replies. I'll post on my other thread in a day or two. Tonight is bonding session /day #14.
this is not uncommon. things might seem to be better and then something happens... what you might try doing, what i did and seemed to help, is putting Baby in the hay box, and then lifting in Gracie, facing the same direction, petting both on the head at the same time. this can simulate grooming from each other. if one jumps out, lift them back in and put them together again. it's called forced cuddling.
if they are very food motivated, you can try a large pile of greens too.
